February Update: Romancing the Earl

This month is all about Romancing the Earl. Distinguished Rogues book 12 releases in about a week and I’m super excited to share it with you all.

Companion Lenore Griffin is in dire straits when a letter from a dear friend arrives, offering a new position. Relieved at her good fortune, Lenore packs up herself and her beloved dog, Hero, and makes haste for London. Upon arrival, however, not only does she find her old friend in a shocking state of dishabille, but she’s somehow mistaken his offer. He has not written requesting a companion for his new wife. He’s written to request Lenore become his companion…for the rest of their lives.

Price Wagstaff, Earl of Carmichael, must have been deeper in his cups than usual when he wrote that correspondence. He doesn’t remember a blasted word of it. Still, it is a disaster of his own making, and so he will do his duty by Lenore. He quickly decides his old childhood friend will make a sensible wife and an agreeable mother to his heirs. He can give her safety, protection and comfort. A marriage of convenience. Lenore need never know that Price’s heart can never be won.

Despite their intentions to live separate lives, the pair can’t avoid the closeness that intimacy provides, and soon, Price no longer wishes to. Is it possible that he may find love a second time? Perhaps…if his secrets don’t kill their chance at happiness.

Romancing the Earl will be available in digital and print, worldwide at all vendors on the 18th.

What I’m writing now…

This month I began a new Christmas novella. If you read One Enchanted Christmas from the Winter Wishes Anthology (in Kindle Unlimited now if you missed it) you might remember my heroine’s brother, Lord Stockwick. Given the way Hector behaved, I had no choice but to find that man a wife. The story is slowly taking shape. Should have more news next month about the story, and about release plans too. (It’s exciting)

LASReviews Weekly Blog Challenge: New Tricks

LASReviews Weekly Blog Challenge: New Tricks

For the whole of my life I’ve felt I needed to have a hobby. When I was younger, I tried lots. Sewing, crafting, knitting, collecting spoons. I tried my hand at crochet, cross stitch, scrapbooking too. None of those ever stuck with me beside sewing, which really is just the occasional stitch here and there.

Of course, there are the books I read. My house and Ereader is bursting with those. Thanks to Bookbub’s daily deals email, I probably have more ebooks than I could ever read in a year. I have old books too. Research material for writing historicals, of course. I’d love to have more, of course, but soooo expensive.

Hang on.

I do have a hobby after all. My hobby is actually book collecting!

Woo hoo!

LOL I have a sneaking suspicion that one is never going to be given up too.

Do you have a hobby and for how long?

Also, I still have those spoons somewhere about the house.
